Hasn't matched her fair bumper form in a couple of starts over hurdles to date, but better than the result at Galway last time, and should improve somewhere down the line, with handicaps an option after this.
Daughter of Oscar who kept on stoutly when 3L third of 15 to Awbeg Prince in a maiden at Ballinrobe on hurdling debut. Likely to do better at this stiffer track, and not taken lightly.
Standout effort in bumpers when 7L second of 8 to Carrie des Champs at Perth in August, but arguably flattered by that, and makes limited appeal switched to hurdles.
Has made some impact over hurdles at a modest level, but looks exposed after six starts over timber, and needs a tongue-tie to elicit some improvement if she's to get seriously involved here.
Hinted at ability in sole bumper start, but soundly beaten on both starts over hurdles, and makes no appeal at this level.
Daughter of Sulamani who won her only start in point-to-points in the spring before joining current connections for €110,000. Looks a nice prospect, and not at all overfaced on Rules debut.
Out of a half-sister to 1993 Cesarewitch winner Aahsaylad (also useful over jumps), so makes a degree of appeal on paper, but likely to need this experience given yard's modus operandi.
Half-sister to winning chaser Foxrock. Best of the hold-up horses when third of 9 to Kilbarry Way in mares maiden at Clonmel on hurdling debut, and sure to do better, so considered.
Hinted at ability when mid-field in a Galway bumper last month, but plenty more required now switched to hurdles.
